The Charity Commission for England and Wales is reportedly investigating Amnesty International saying it is “aware” of concerns relating to the London-based charity’s shameful report that accuses Israel of ‘apartheid’. The regulator will determine “if charitable funds have been used to fund the report and, if so, whether this is of regulatory concern.”

Lord Carlile, QC, the former government reviewer of anti-terrorism legislation, called the report “overtly political”, saying, “This is on the very edge of their permissible role as a charity.”

Amnesty raises money in Britain as a charitable trust, which means it receives benefits such as gift aid, but it publishes its reports through a limited company, Amnesty International Ltd, which it funds. Charity Commission rules say that when charities do this, they must ensure that the company uses its funding for charitable purposes and the “public benefit”.

  • Pray that Amnesty International’s report will not receive the international credibility that it craves. Thank the Lord for those international bodies that have condemned the report. And continue to pray for the Jewish community and for Jews on campuses in light of the report’s potential to fuel antisemitism. 
  • We stand firmly on God’s Word, as declared in Psalm 129:5, “Let all those who hate Zion be put to shame and turned back.”
